This layout I created 2 years ago, it was accepted for published and then all sorts of publishing drama has occured. I have been advised it may not be printed and I can share it so here it is….
I decided to have another go at this challenge this month. Last month the Custard Yellow layout I did was pick up for publishing so I was keen to get an entry into this challenge.
The colour this month was Antique Moss. Kahki Green in other words. All my greens are fairyly bright so I started off mixing my own version of the green that I wanted to use. My ingredients were – 2 squirts of Kaisercraft Antique Gold, 2 Squirts of Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Fossilised Amber and 4 of Tim Holtz Twisted Citron. This is my colour swatch. I knew I wanted to write this blog post to I made sure I kept track of what I was adding.
I applied my ink to my pre-prepared cardstock (a layer of gel medium) using a mop brush and plenty of water. Once it was dry I added some texture paste through a sencil.
I then went through my stash and pulled out everything that was white and green. I had no idea where I was actually going with this layout but I knew what colours I had to work with. I found this little felt frame in a box of ‘I don’t know if I will ever use these things’ and I decided that I was going to make it work. The photo I chose was a black and white photo of my daughter that I had printed out a while ago but hadn’t decided how I wanted to scrap it. I actually have a few different photos from this day that I want to scrapbook but I love them so much I didn’t want to just scrap them for the sake of it. Anyways, once I had my frame and my photo I just kept layout out bits and pieces until I was happy then I glued it all down.
Just as I was sitting down one night to write this post I thought I should send this one off to see if I can get it published. I was gobsmacked when I got the acceptance email. So now it has been published I can finally share it.
Here are some of the details.
